While England’s Telegraph reports "The Kinks Set To Reunite For New Album And Tour" founding member Dave Davies has put the brakes on the story.
The Telegraph reports, “The Kinks could reform to release a new album and tour, it has been claimed, as Ray Davies says members have resolved their differences.
“The band, which broke up in the 1990s, hope to release new material after a musical about their career helped lead them to reconcile.
“In an interview with the Sunday Times, Ray Davies, the Kinks’ lead singer and songwriter, said he had been meeting his brother Dave with a view to writing together again”.
Dave hasn’t completely ruled out a reunion. “I met and talked with Ray but nothing has been agreed on yet,” he told fans on Facebook.
Dave’s brother Ray told the Sunday Times, “I met Dave only last week to talk about getting back together again,” he said. “We’ve also spoken a few times on the phone and emailed.
“He’s been composing his own songs, but I’d really like to write with him again.
“We both agree we don’t want to do old stuff or tour with past hits. It’s got to be something new.”
The Kinks last studio album was Phobia in 1993. The line-up for that record was Ray Davies, Dave Davies, Jim Rodford and Bob Henrit.
